I Want a Job Counseling People?

Question by sephia: I want a job counseling people?
My career counselor doesn’t know what filed I should enter. I know that, at minimum, I will need to get a Masters. But in what????

But first I must start with a undergrad program.

Should I enter Psychology or Social Work?

But I am confused because everyone keeps telling me that getting degree in Psychology is worthless. I have even heard people tell me that a master’s degree in Psychology is worthless. What do you think?

Answer by Lisa
What kind of counseling do you want to do? My aunt is a psychology bs/ma, and she works at an elementary school working with kids.

I have a friend who went into social work, and her job is more about helping families who have had problems get back on track.

I think you need a better idea of what you want to do before you choose. Have you thought of volunteering somewhere where you might be able to learn more about those opportunities?
